Prevent Dump Bed Accidents and Fatalities with Dump-Lok!
Each year, hundreds of serious injuries and fatalities occur when unsecured, or improperly secured, dump beds fall while workers are performing dump truck maintenance. Dump-Lok solves that dangerous problem.
Dump-Lok is an engineering breakthrough in dump truck safety. The Dump-Lok steel braces lock your truck's dump bed in the raised position, preventing it from falling in cases of system failure or operator error. Plus, Dump-Lok safely holds dump beds at angles higher than most dump truck manufacturer body props, giving workers safe access to more areas underneath the dump bed.
Dump-Lok has been independently tested by the Structures and Materials Testing Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin - Madison to support a massive 50,000 lbs per pair.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has issued citations to employers for failing to provide lockout procedures while employees were working under the dump body of dump trucks. OSHA recognizes the hazard of unsecured dump beds, and has recommended using an alternative "truck bed brace bracket". (OSHA SHIB 09-18-2006)
